Discovery: Customization Lists

Understanding how your account is configured is one of the main challenges NetSuite admins face when they're working in a heavily customized instance, starting in a new role or taking over from a team of consultants.

Strongpoint starts by scanning your account and documenting all custom fields, records, account settings and more, so you can instantly see how you're set up and how things are connected. Best of all, this record is constantly updated, so it's always accurate.

Impact Analysis: Entity Relationship Diagrams

Strongpoint treats account documentation like data, and gives you several dynamic tools for working with it. The Entity Relationship Diagram is one our popular configuration management tools for NetSuite Admins — with it, you can easily see all downstream dependencies on a customization, and know instantly what will be affected if you make a change, and whether that change is safe to make or not.

Account Optimization: Customization Cleanup

Unused customizations are a natural byproduct of NetSuite's exceptional flexibility — and a common occurrence in any mature account. When they build up, however, they make it harder for you to do your job, and can impact user adoption, too. 

Strongpoint gives you tools for identifying unused customizations that can be safely deleted right away. Then, it streamlines the investigation and approval processes for more complex deprecations.

Troubleshooting: Change Logs

Strongpoint's change logs are a detailed record of what changed, how it changed and who did it. They're available in a report called, "What Changed" — a highly useful way to troubleshoot issues by homing in on recent development activity. 

Normally you'd do this using NetSuite system notes. And system notes can be incredibly useful — but they have their limitations. Watch our webinar: NetSuite System Notes vs. Strongpoint Change Logs for a complete rundown of the differences between Strongpoint change logs and NetSuite system notes

Resource Allocation: Change Management

Strongpoint tells you which changes are simple and which are complex, and lets you build custom change policies based on that risk. Pre-clear everything that's safe and simple, while elevating anything that could have business or technical consequences to the proper authority for review and approval.  

With Strongpoint, IT resources are allocated more efficiently and highly skilled NetSuite admins can focus on tasks that require their expertise.
